MANY TRIBES, ONE SPIRIT
Camping / Campervans
There will be a specific area to camp with your tent where you will be able to enter with your car. Remember that you must bring all your camping equipment with you!
There will also be a zone dedicated for campervans and mobile homes. In this area there will be no connection to electricity. In the whole camping area, please avoid the use of speakers, especially after 10pm.
The festival will enjoy access to the beautiful Lake Santa Ana. The lakeshore is just 2 minutes from the centre of the festival and the water is pure and crystalline. We invite you to swim whenever you want.
NOTE: The lake is outside the festival grounds and there will NOT be lifeguards by the water, so please be careful, especially if you bring kids.
If you are thinking of bringing a pet, please advise us ahead of time so that we’ll know how many animals we’ll have on the property. There is a limit to the number of dogs we can have. Write us at [email protected]
Agni means fire in Sanskrit, and although we’ll have fire in the festival it is totally PROHIBITED to have any fire in the camping zone or forest as the area has a high fire risk. Thanks for your collaboration on this!
The element of water is very present at the land and we have the good fortune to have natural sources of drinkable mineral water throughout the property. Bring your own bottle to refill whenever you like at the points indicated. Stay hydrated!
“ZERO WASTE” FESTIVAL
– Moving Beyond Leave no Trace –
Are you joining the Zero Waste challenge?
We are extremely excited to have joined the Zero Waste Festival train and to be one of the few events in Spain that embraces this important shift for our planet and for humanity. From the Agni team we are so committed to make this festival a sustainable organism creating lower impact to the land, becoming more aware of the waste we produce and ultimately moving towards a culture where we contribute not only to “leave no trace” but to “leave a better trace”, one that moves towards a culture of connection with nature, each other and ourselves.
Our highest hope is that by applying some of this innovative and daring changes into the ethos of the festival we plant a seed of inspiration to empower our people, tribes and community to make changes on their own terms. If you have been to Agni in previous years you will find some significant changes to the way we are managing our waste. We invite all of you participants to take this matter as seriously as we are, and to help our beloved festival to set an example for our future generations
THE INFORMATION BELOW IS SUPER IMPORTANT TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR THE FESTIVAL!
Going Waste Free at Agni
“Pack it in, Pack it out” – Our purpose this year is to bring and create as little waste as possible during our time on site. That’s why you will NOT find rubbish bins anywhere in the festival site. Everything that we bring we are responsible to take out with us. There will be rubbish bags available for you at reception to keep your trash with you so you can take it you go when you depart.
BYO Cup, Plate & Cutlery – This will be an essential part of Agni this year. Our wonderful vendors will be providing amazing food, but they will NOT serve it in disposable plates or cups. We encourage you to bring your plate, cup and cutlery, however you can also purchase/rent the beautiful Agni cups as well as plates and cutlery at the Reception, where you can then return them when you want and get a refund – 10€ deposit for cup (6€ alone), plate & cutlery (4€ alone), 6€ refund (4€ cup, 1 € plate, 1€ cutlery).
Composting at Agni – Next to the washing up station you will find a compost bin to dump any food scraps. Then our amazing volunteers will take it to the Compost Hole where it will nurture the soil!
JOIN THE PLASTIC DIET
Water Bottle – Water is Life! And there are so many water points around the festival grounds. Bring your own reusable bottle to fill up so you stay hydrated!
Plastic Bags – From Agni Spirit Festival we will try very hard to use as little plastic as possible and we would love that you do the same! An old cardboard box, is a great way to store your rubbish during the festival and to avoid plastic bags.
HOW TO DO IT?
Before coming to Agni – The Zero Waste challenge starts at home before packing for the festival! Choose carefully what are you going to bring, what are you buying, refuse packaging at the supermarket, and only bring what is needed and will not create unnecessary waste.
Have everything at hand! – Carrying a backpack around the festival with all your necessary things will be of great help: water bottle, plate, cup, cutlery, sun protection (see below!), swimming costume, etc.
Protect our waters! – It is not only what we put on the Earth but also what runs to our waters. We are so luck to have amazing pure water on site and we need to protect it! At the Agni showers we will provide biodegradable soap and shampoo for everyone. We ask you the same for the toothpaste! Please, DO NOT use any product that is going to damage the lake and the potable water.
Protect your skin and the Lake! – The same applies to sunblock. Yes! If we use a non-organic highly chemical sun protection and then we swim in the lake this is going to dissolve in the water and poison the wild life, including a very rare and unique species of fish that was there before us!
WHEN LEAVING SITE:
The Own Land is natural treasure, and the proposal of Agni is not to be detrimental to the state of the land or water.
For this we ask:
- Make sure your camp site is clean and that you are not leaving any rubbish whatsoever behind
- Take all your rubbish with you and PLEASE AVOID DUMPING IN BALDELLOU! Hold on to it until you reach Alfarràs, Lleida, or a bigger town. This is extremely important for our hopefully long term relationship with the town and the development of the festival in this site! Help us keep a good name and image!
- If you smoke, please bring a sealable portable ashtray
- Please don’t use the fields as a public toilet. Use the beautiful compost toilets (and yes, the portaloos too!)
